Las Cuevas Bay

Everything you could ask for in a beach is available at Las Cuevas Bay: calm waters for swimming and fishing, sleek sand for strolling and sun bathing, caves for exploring, and even an area for camping.

Set in the vicinity of Port of Spain, 3.3 miles east-northeast of Maracas Bay, Las Cuevas Bay is on the North edge of Trinidad.
